Wait, Mindy Kaling is pregnant?

Apparently so.


E! News reports that Kaling is having a baby, which one unnamed friend described as “an unexpected surprise.” The actress, who grew up in Cambridge and attended Buckingham Browne & Nichols, has spoken in the past about her desire to be a parent.

“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” she told Yahoo! Style. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

Kaling, who stars in director Ava DuVernay’s upcoming “A Wrinkle in Time,” dated Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012 and her “The Office” costar B.J. Novak before that.
